A Road From Lubumbashi

A Road From Lubumbashi Movie Poster

For over 100 years, a wide spectrum of writers and social activists have called attention to the exploitation of resources and people in central Africa, referred to as the Congo Free State, the Belgium Congo, Zaire, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

From Mark Twain and Arthur Conan Doyle to present day websites like Enough and Friends of the Congo, there has been a call for the general population of Western countries to take action to end what are commonly called "the crimes of the Congo." A Road From Lubumbashi tells the story of our connection to the Congo, brings voice to the Congolese as equal partners in this issue, and provides an idea which consumers and creators of technology can play.
